I figured I would put this in here...I recently purchased the VR Viewmaster from Amazon when they had their sale..I think the price now is 29 bucks. I
wanted to mention this because if you own a Samsung Phone (I have the Samsung S5) this is the coolest VR toy to have. The software that you download
is just mediocre at best but when you download google cardboard to your phone it becomes awesome. Although you do have to hold the lens with two hands
you will never look at google maps again without them.
Street view is incredible and I put this in the education section because when I went to look at the pyramids I was shocked to see openings in the
pyramids that I was not aware of..nothing ground breaking this just gives looking at landmarks a whole new twist.
You are also able to take awesome pictures using the cardboard camera which is a free app just like the google cardboard app. They become panoramic
pictures and that app is also free. I did purchase two roller coaster apps that were .99 cents each and although they were great it's the same thing
over and over again.
It would be great if ATS members could share special places that they travel to and be able to download them to see them in VR..just a thought
I think this is a great way to see things in amazing detail on the cheap for those interested. Well worth it ATS and you can also watch movies on it
but can't see holding this thing for an hour and half unless some crafty ATS folks glue some straps to it..
Best money spent folks..
